Vanilla Ice aboard plane quarantined at JFK Airport

Vanilla Ice aboard plane quarantined at JFK Airport

"On arrival, as a precaution, they were attended to by local health authorities", the airline announced.

The CDC also says all passengers without a fever would be allowed to continue with their travel plans, and if needed, their conditions will be followed up by health officials.

Eleven people aboard an Emirates airline flight from Dubai were taken to NY hospitals with a mystery ailment after scores of passengers and crew complained of feeling sick during the 14-hour overnight trip from the Middle East. "Nine passengers underwent additional medical screening at the site near the aircraft and were released afterwards", said the spokeswoman for Dubai-based Emirates.

It was a direct flight and did not, as an early tweet from Eric Phillips - the press secretary for Bill DeBlasio - said, stop in Mecca. An additional eight people were treated at the airport, he added.

"Emirates can confirm that about 10 passengers on EK203 from Dubai to NY were taken ill".

There were 521 passengers on board flight EK203, the CDC said. The A380 is the world's largest passenger aircraft.

Nadal and Thiem battle in NY
Thiem handed Nadal , against whom he lost in the Roland Garros final in June, just his fourth ever "bagel" set at the Slams. The victor of this match will face Juan Martin del Potro - who saw off big-serving American John Isner - in the last four.

Some sick passengers were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Centre with non- life-threatening conditions, according to a New York City Fire Department spokesman.

Forms were then passed out to gather passengers' medical information before they could exit the plane.

Seven of the people taken to the hospital were crew members.

While it's unclear at this point exactly what made almost 20% of the passengers feel so ill, NBC reports that the flight from Dubai made a stop in Mecca, where there is an ongoing flu outbreak.

"CDC is aware of two American Airlines flights from Paris and Germany that arrived at PHL airport this afternoon with ill passengers on board", Haynes said in a statement.
